unit. including one female agent who mid twenty's all of those in i.c.u. what we would consider critically ill police have arrested a number of suspects using as prime minister said they weren't on security watch lists. arriving with a bomb disposal robot the place of started their investigation into lead a small city to the south of christchurch where the main suspect lived the area was evacuated as a precaution earlier place a discovered two bombs in the one suspect's car the unprecedented violence has prompted the government to commit to changing gun control laws my understanding is he held a category i gun license and again i purchased my advice currently is that he under the gun license was able to legally acquired the guns that he held they will give you an indication of why we need to change our gun laws the national threat level
12:04 pm
has been raised from low to high as place politicians and the public come to terms with the worst and the most shocking a time they've ever experienced older people have been gathering here. laying flowers and just standing in quiet contemplation there are a lot of questions to be answered about how this attack happened but there's a lot of grief and solidarity to be expressed under thomas' al-jazeera cross church and our correspondent wayne hayes also here they all nor moscow and i understand some of the police cordons have been taken down can you set the scene there. certainly did a short time ago we saw the police move into this area and move the cordon about two hundred meters down this road which leads to the el nor mosque which of course is where most of the people were killed on friday there is still very much a police cordon in place a very large police presence around the mosque itself which continues to be an
12:05 pm
active crime scene but slowly but surely that cordon is being reduced the police line being moved closer to that mosque site and when they move that cordon further down the road there were many people on hand as there has been right throughout the course of saturday who picked up the flowers the tributes that have been laid at the police cordon move them with the coordinate self down this road closer to the mosque and as you can see there are still many people here late at night on saturday night still coming here to pay their respects to the people that were killed in this tragedy and to offer a silent thought just to spend some time here and to reflect on exactly what has happened this is a very small city the city of christchurch certainly in world standards and zealand is a small country in general so it has hit this community very hard it is a resilient community though but it will take some time but the moment still the
12:06 pm
mood is very somber it is still one of shock of course when this attack has brought a lot of focus into new zealand's gun laws then when the prime minister says she will change can you explain to us what those last four and what people are calling for now. yes well there were very strongly worded comments from the new zealand prime minister this saying that the gun law will be changed she didn't suggest that she will push for this to be changed that it was going to be a proposal before parliament it was something very definitive that she would change the law and i don't imagine that there will be much opposition to that idea from within government or from within parliament whenever that issue is raised in a formal manner new zealand's gun laws are already quite strict although not strict enough to have prevented what happened on friday he had a similar automatic weapon something that you can buy legally in new zealand
12:07 pm
perhaps that river lation will be greeted with surprise by most the cylinders who may not realize this in your dramatic weapons are available for purchase in new zealand with a gun license you cannot do that in neighboring australia so that is something clearly that the new zealand prime minister will want to look to change and she also spoke about the modifications that were made to some of the weapons that were used on friday and something that needs to be looked at as well and also how easy it is for someone coming from from outside new zealand with a firearms license from their particular country australia for example being able to arrive here in new zealand and present that firearms license from their home country and get a weapon across the counter in this country without having to go through any sort of background checks now they're not suggesting that was the case in this scenario but certainly that will be something that will be looked into as this investigation goes on when he in christchurch for us thank you.

has more from the australian city of grafton that is where the twenty eight year old suspect brendan tyrants and since childhood. this is a community in shock tyrant's spent the first twenty years of his life in grafton it's a sleepy regional town in country new south wales and we spoke with the arch dane of the anglican church here and he said that. the community can't believe that one of their own could be involved in an attack like this distressed parishioners have been calling in all day on saturday asking what it is they can do about the attack the we also spoke with the deputy mayor and he says that this community is one that has fallen on hard times recently economically with the loss of industry and now has to contend with the fact that is going to be associated with the attack in christchurch on sunday there will be a number of church services where the community will come together will be
12:09 pm
a lot of soul searching but also a show of support for the victims in christchurch world leaders have been offering messages of support to the people of new zealand on saturday the prime minister spoke to donald trump and asked what he could do to help i spoke with donald trump this morning he sought to costa rica he very much wish for his condolences to be passed on to new zealand he asked for support the united states could spread wide my message was sympathy and love for all muslim communities. well the u.s. president has described the attacks as terrible but the suspects manifesto suggests that trump was a source of inspiration i cannot has the details from washington. it was a somber day of prayer for american muslims all expressing sorrow for those who died in the new zealand attacks i'm absolutely heartbroken as everybody is today i
12:10 pm
i woke up to the news with my phone as well being outplayed us and i was absolutely i needed to come to my prayer but in a nation that has seen its share of attacks on houses of worship this concern about what many view as a sometimes inflammatory comments that are attard by the president i actually think that the rhetoric that exists from the white house is very much ignite responses that causes of else like these to happen around the world a message driven home by this muslim leader mr trump your awards not your policies matter they impact the lives of innocent people at home and globally in recent years the u.s. has seen an up taken extreme right wing violence at least one convicted extremist with clearly defined links to president trump sees a say accent pipe bombs to the president's critics and had pictures of donald trump
12:11 pm
on his van. and there was no specific criticism from the president a white supremacist in charlottesville whose actions led to the death of an anti races protester the president's response there are very fine people on both sides. after expressing sorrow for the new zealand attacks president trump insisted he did not think quite nationalists were a growing global threat i don't really i think it's a small group of people that have very very serious problems and i guess if you look at what happened in new zealand perhaps that's a case i don't know enough about it yet they're just learning about the person and the people involved but it's certainly a terrible thing and discussing his border wall the president echoed the words of one of the killers who did legibly written we are experiencing an invasion on a level never seen before in history people hate the word invasion but that's what
12:12 pm
it is it's an invasion of drugs and criminals and people the trump presidential campaign galvanized the us right wing attracting supporters like this former ku klux klan leader we are in the most critical lection probably in our history and donald trump is the guy that really stands up donald trump repudiated duke support but conservative whites with a key to his election victory a demographic the president continues to court for what he hopes will be another successful campaign mike hanna i'll just era washington. the opposition leaves parliament and takes the fight against corruption to the streets.
